Qué razón tenía Lula. Esta gente simula conocimientos y no vale para nada

Gregory Mankiw es uno de tantos profesores de Harvard, (hay miles) esa universidad de pago de donde han salido cantidad de ladrones sin escrúpulos y tarados que han llevado a los EE.UU. y al mundo a esta destrucción anunciada. Fue asesor de Bush, pero Bush tenía miles de asesores y se los pasaba por los huevos a todos.  Está en Wikipedia español,  su sitio en inglés es largo, puro autobombo y aburridor de detalles.

La última parida que se le ha ocurrido a este profe de necios, de una hernia de cerebro que tuvo un estudiante de él:  Ha propuesto que al que ponga dinero en un banco en EE.UU., en vez de pagarle un interés, le quiten dinero.  Y/O  que cada tanto se decrete que todos los billetes que terminan en un número, el 9 digamos, ¡que ya no valen !  Esto si lo hubiera propuesto Stalin o Fidel aún se entendería.  Si Obama hace lo que dice este subnormal capacitado, le iría peor que a Kennedy, ¡con lo que son los rubios del norte para el dinero !

It May Be Time for the Fed to Go Negative
/…/ Unless, that is, we figure out a way to make holding money less attractive. At one of my recent Harvard seminars, a graduate student proposed a clever scheme to do exactly that.  Imagine that the Fed were to announce that, a year from today, it would pick a digit from zero to 9 out of a hat. All currency with a serial number ending in that digit would no longer be legal tender. Suddenly, the expected return to holding currency would become negative 10 percent. That move would free the Fed to cut interest rates below zero. People would be delighted to lend money at negative 3 percent, since losing 3 percent is better than losing 10.

The idea of making money earn a negative return is not entirely new. In the late 19th century, the German economist Silvio Gesell argued for a tax on holding money. He was concerned that during times of financial stress, people hoard money rather than lend it. John Maynard Keynes approvingly cited the idea of a carrying tax on money. With banks now holding substantial excess reserves, Gesell’s concern about cash hoarding suddenly seems very modern. If all of this seems too outlandish, there is a more prosaic way of obtaining negative interest rates: through inflation.

The idea of negative interest rates may strike some people as absurd, the concoction of some impractical theorist. Perhaps it is. But remember this: Early mathematicians thought that the idea of negative numbers was absurd. Today, these numbers are commonplace. Even children can be taught that some problems (such as 2x + 6 = 0) have no solution unless you are ready to invoke negative numbers. Maybe some economic problems require the same trick.

Un economista norteamericano dice que espero que esto sea una broma:  «Well, I stil hope Mankiw is joking. If not, he’s a real dumb piece of meat, and having him continue teaching economics at Harvard is a scary thought. I don’t think he’s joking. «
